Will Brazilian be joining Toon? Father has massive transfer update

Gabriel Martinelli will not be leaving Arsenal in the January transfer window, his father has admitted

Regarded as the future at the Emirates, Martinelli is a player that most Gunners fans are hoping develops into the player that he is being tipped to become

The 20-year-old is struggling for regular minutes under Mikel Arteta and there had been suggestions that he would leave the club in the coming transfer window in order to get some more game time

A number of clubs in Europe are said to be keen with loans being mooted, including Newcastle, but no deal will be done over the winter as Martinelli endeavours to prove his worth at Emirates Stadium.

Reacting to the rumours with Yahoo, Martinelli’s father Joao said: “Since he came back from an injury, he’s been playing a lot less than he would have liked.

“There has been some talk of proposals from Europe, but Arsenal have already warned that they will not release him.

“People like him a lot. Not only for what he does when he plays, but also for his dedication. Martinelli is almost always the first to arrive for training and the last to leave.”

Martinelli suffered a serious knee injury in June 2020 that kept him out of action for the best part of six months. He was eased back into the Gunners fold upon his return and has suffered another couple of knocks since.


Martinelli has so much potential that is being wasted on that Arsenal bench, and the fact he wants to stay, could be a bad decision. At Newcastle he could have got the game time that he is looking for

The Toon will be doing alot of business, so this news will come as a massive blow to their chances of getting a few loan deals done in January
